Here we give you a snapshot of some of what the Priests for Life family of ministries is doing in these days. We thank you for your support and invite you to get to know us better!!

Fr. Frank has been preparing for a national strategy session with prolife leaders, to take place in conjunction with the dedication of the new Priests for Life headquarters this Spring. Priests for Life has arranged these strategy sessions in the past as well and they have led to increased understanding and collaboration between national prolife groups.

Fr. Frank is also meeting with leaders at the Council for National Policy meeting in these days, along with our Executive Director Janet Morana. The presence of Priests for Life at these meetings helps to keep leading religious, political and business leaders in the conservative movement up to date on developments in the effort to restore protection to children in the womb.

Our Executive DIrector Janet Morana has been promoting her new book Shockwaves: Abortion’s Wider Circle of Victims. Copies are now available at www.ShockwavesTheBook.com.

Bob Lalonde, who coordinates our international activities, was at the United Nations in New York again this week (February 5 – 7) for the remaining days of the Commission on Social Development (CoSD56) organized with the theme “strategies for eradicating poverty to achieve sustainable development for all”.  We participated in formal meetings and side events, including those sponsored by the Holy See, and promoting our written statement that no member of the human family should be “stripped of human dignity and denied their most basic right — the right to life — through policies that allow individuals to be marginalized and treated as a problem and their extinction considered an acceptable strategy for poverty eradication. Our complete statement—E/CN.5/2018/NGO/59—can be found on the Commission’s website in English | Français | Español and is also posted here.
